At Deer Park’s John F. Kennedy Intermediate School, students participated in a “Soup-er Bowl” charitable initiative, bringing in cans of soup and depositing them in one of two boxes in the school lobby representing their team pick, either the Atlanta Falcons or the New England Patriots. The box holding the most soup cans on the last school day before the Feb. 5 NFL Super Bowl would be declared the winner.
“The Atlanta Falcons won our contest by a landslide, although that did not play out in the actual Super Bowl” joked Patricia Katz, JFK’s student government adviser.
The collected soup cans were donated to the St. Cyril’s Food Bank in Deer Park.
